In January 2020, California adopted updated Title 24 building code. This change increases the level of filtration efficiency on HVAC systems install in new homes.
AprilAire Filter Grille Air Cleaners with MERV 13 filters give you the most effective, and easiest to install, filtration solution that complies with Title 24, Part 6.
1. Filters must have a minimum MERV 13 rating
Filter Grille Air Cleaners use 613 and 813 Healthy Home MERV 13 Filters, compatible with the 16”x25” and 20”x25” models, respectively.
2. Filters must be at least 2” deep
All AprilAire filters are 4” deep. This provides homes with better, longer-lasting particulate removal and lower static pressure due to more filter surface area.
Watch this video to learn how AprilAire Filter Grilles meet Title 24 code.
Superior system protection over 1” filters – extends the life of the HVAC system
Fewer filter grilles to install – our filters' low static pressure means you won’t have to install more filters to reduce the high system static that would be created by using 1” filters
